Fred “HeinKill” Williams from SimHQ has reviewed Atlantic Fleet and took some time to interview Nils Duecker, the lead artist for the game.
Atlantic Fleet scored a 9/10 and Fred had the following to say:
“This impressive game costs about the same as a fast food meal, but offers you a three course dinner you won’t tire of.”
“And honestly, I am simply gobsmacked that this level of detail is even included in a 10 USD iOS title.”

The folks over at Pocket Tactics have reviewed Atlantic Fleet. Couple of highlights are below or head to Pocket Tactics for the full review.
“If the true test of a game is how much time you spend playing it, then Atlantic Fleet is probably the game of the year.”
“The tactical model that underpins Atlantic Fleet is a remarkable balance of movie-style action and detailed simulation, and that creates a lot of emergent fun.”
“The finishing touch on top of all of these elements is Atlantic Fleet’s canny AI, which seems to be as attached to its ships as you are to yours.”
